Harvey Vaughan

Harvey Vaughan died at his home on College hill Sunday evening, of heart failure, at his 80th year. He was born in Chelsea, moving to Taftsville with his family when a boy, and for 30 years was employed in the Taft scythe factory there. Later he engaged in farming and for the past ten years has made his home here.

Mr. Vaughan married Miss Cynthia A. Thomson of North Bridgewater and together they celebrated their golden wedding anniversary Oct. 4, 1904. Mrs. Vaughan died five years ago, since which time their daughter, Mrs. Bessie G. Boles, has devotedly cared for Mr. Vaughan until the present time.

Mr. Vaughan is survived by two brothers and a sister, Aaron Vaughan of Lebanon, N.H.; Earl Vaughan of Roslindale, Mass., and Mrs. Marietta Allen of Winthrop, Mass. One brother, Darwin, lost his life in the Battle of Gettysburg, and his brother, Orson, is also deceased.

Mr. Vaughan was a veteran of the Civil war, having served with Company B, 12th Vt. Vols. Capt. Ora Paul

The funeral service was held at the home Tuesday afternoon, Rev. W. A. Leonard officiating. Interment was in the Taftsville cemetery, where the Grand Army ritual was rendered.
